In his role as art director, Jonathan guides visual communications for college relations, undergraduate education, and the Berkey Creamery. His work includes the Penn State Ag Science magazine, the college overview, annual reports, and undergraduate recruiting materials.

Before joining the College of Agricultural Sciences, Jonathan was the art director for the Penn State Alumni Association and the award-winning The Penn Stater magazine—during which time it won the Robert Sibley Magazine of the Year award from CASE.
